In an effort to celebrate its timeless aesthetic, Victorinox Swiss Army has launched a contest which tasked artists with creating the next limited-edition design for its small 58 mm Classic pocket knife.

This year's theme of "Places of the World!" attracted a global audience with over 878 ideas from 62 countries submitted. Original artists entered their creative designs, which ranged from abstract images that captured the feel of a city, to defined renderings of significant buildings, like Paris' Eiffel Tower or New York's Statue of Liberty.

The contest demonstrates the varying creativity from around the world, as a global community of artists visualized their love for their city. The entire collection is available online or at the Victorinox flagship in Yorkville, Toronto.
